    Nov 30, 2023 [News] Korean battery companies are reducing investment in North America, LG and other announced layoffs
    Wire harness automation: wire harness intelligent manufacturing service platform. Combined with automobile wiring harness manufacturing labor intensive, more labor; The pain points of large staff turnover and poor quality assurance ability. To provide the wire harness people to communicate and learn from each other, so as to achieve the purpose of resource sharing and technology sharing.   As demand in the global electric vehicle industry slows, South Korean battery makers are scaling back their investments and laying off workers in North America. LG Energy Solution announced in November that it would cut 170 jobs at its Michigan plant after launching joint ventures in the US with GM, Honda and Hyundai Motor.   Another South Korean battery maker, SK On, signed an $11 billion deal with Ford Motor in 2021 to advance electric vehicles. SK On laid off more than 100 workers at its U.S. plant in September and delayed plans to build a second plant in Kentucky in a joint venture with Ford. The plant was originally scheduled to begin production in 2026.   The president of an automotive convergence technology institute in South Korea said that the power battery market appears to be undergoing a correction, and there are growing concerns about overcapacity because the industry has invested too much in a short period of time. In recent months, Ford, GM and Tesla have all suspended plans to expand electric vehicle production capacity because consumer demand has been weaker than expected.   LG New Energy said it will cut nearly 10 percent of its workforce at its wholly owned plant in Michigan, but expects a bright future, with plans to hire about 1,000 more workers after the expansion of its Michigan plant is completed in the third quarter of 2024.   Japanese battery giant Panasonic, which supplies batteries for higher-end models such as Tesla's Model S and Model X, has also cut back on domestic production of automotive batteries. Panasonic is continuing to invest in its Nevada plant, which benefits from US subsidies to produce batteries for lower-priced Tesla vehicles. But Panasonic is not slowing down in the U.S. and is considering setting up a third plant in the country.   Aichie provides auto wiring harness , high voltage ev cable assembly and low-voltage auto wiring harness around the world.

  • News--Many car companies have stopped production at their factories in China
    Oct 24, 2023 News--Many car companies have stopped production at their factories in China
    Many car companies have stopped production at their factories in China   According to several foreign media reports, a Volkswagen spokesman said on Monday that two production lines at FAW-Volkswagen's Chengdu plant and Changchun plant have been suspended due to a shortage of parts, with no expected recovery time and no closed-loop production planning. In response to the above reports, FAW Volkswagen has not yet replied.       Volkswagen, Toyota and Honda are halting or reducing production at factories in China Nikkei Chinese website reported on November 30 that due to China's strict epidemic lockdown measures, Toyota and Honda and other Japanese car companies were forced to reduce production or stop production. From November 28 to 29, Dongfeng Honda suspended production at three vehicle plants in Wuhan. Toyota spokesman Shino Yamada also said the company was adjusting some production at its factories in China due to a variety of factors, but declined to elaborate.       It can be said that whether it is the quarantine of people at home caused by the epidemic control, or the shortage of core parts and chip shortage caused by various comprehensive factors, it is the "mountain" that is pressing on the current production field of Chinese car companies.   On November 27, Ideal also issued a statement in the official APP, saying that due to the delay in the supply of core parts, some models that should have been delivered at the end of November will be delayed to December. However, Ideal also further said that the original December delivery of the model will not be affected.   But at the same time, it should also be noted that according to the survey of the Passenger Association, from November 1 to 27, the production capacity of domestic car companies was flat last year. "Although some brands in overseas markets have exposed factors such as parts shortage and energy supply interference affecting the overall annual global production forecast, the current production of the Chinese market remains basically stable, and fuel vehicle inventory is absolutely abundant."     Of course, due to the recent rebound of the domestic epidemic, the association also said that the proportion of car dealers closed has increased, which has a greater impact on the flow of exhibition halls and orders in the market. Data show that in the fourth week of November (November 21-27), the overall narrow passenger car market retail sales reached an average of 53,000 vehicles per day, down 31% year-on-year and 32% lower than the average in the fourth week of October this year.   Wuhan Guangzhou area auto factories have closed loop production In fact, due to the frequent occurrence of the domestic epidemic, a number of car companies have launched a closed on-site production strategy.   According to sources, Dongfeng's car factory in Wuhan has once again launched the "first-line production" defense war.   At present,...

  • Tesla's NACS EV connector is expected to standardize the EV charging landscape in the USA
    Jul 31, 2023 Tesla's NACS EV connector is expected to standardize the EV charging landscape in the USA
    The NACS interface is currently leading the global competition, simplifying the EV charging process and putting a single standard in focus for the future.     Us automakers Ford and General Motors will adopt Tesla's North American Charging Standard (NACS) charging connector as the preferred interface for their upcoming EV models. In the days following GM's June 2023 announcement, a sizable number of charging station companies, including Tritium, and other automakers, including Volvo, Rivian, and Mercedes-Benz, quickly announced their intention to follow suit. Hyundai is also studying the possibility of making changes. This shift will make the Tesla EV connector the standard for electric vehicle charging in North America and beyond. At present, many connector companies offer a variety of interfaces to meet the needs of different automotive manufacturers OEM and regional markets.     Tesla's NACS EV connector   One complicating factor in the widespread adoption of electric vehicles is the lack of a unified EV charging connector. Just as the adoption of Type-C USB connectors has simplified the future of device charging, a universal interface for car charging will enable seamless vehicle charging. Currently, electric vehicle owners must plan to charge at a specific charging station, or use an adapter to charge at an incompatible charging station. In the future, using the Tesla NACS standard, drivers of all electric vehicles will be able to charge at each stop during their journey without using an adapter. Older electric cars and other types of charging ports will be able to connect using Tesla's Magic Dock adapter. However, NACS is not used in Europe, not even by Tesla. Charging infrastructure in Europe uses the CCS T2 standard. Tesla charging stations can also be charged using CCS T2 or European Tesla connectors."       Current charging standards Depending on the region and vehicle manufacturer, the wiring harness world also lists a range of electric vehicle charging connectors currently in use. Cars designed for AC charging use Type 1 and type 2 plugs. Type 1 includes SAE J1772 (J-plug). It has a charging speed of up to 7.4 kW. Type 2 includes the Mennekes or IEC 62196 standard (made in 2018) for European and Asian vehicles and is known as SAE J3068 in North America. It is a three-phase plug with a charging power of up to 43 kW. Electric vehicle charging gun standard   For faster DC charging, use a combined charging system or CCS. This interface adds two high-speed DC fast charging pins to the J1722 Type 1 plug. The CCS2 version is widely used in Australia. The CCS connector provides 500 amps and 1000 volts DC at 350 kW (kW).   The national standard GB/T 20234.2-2015 for electric vehicles in China is another electric vehicle charging connector that offers AC and DC configurations. In Japan, near-traditional CHAdeMo connectors are still used.     Tesla NACS EV charging connec...

  • Recall | Mazda is recalling 340,000 Mazda3 and Mazda CX-3 vehicles in North America due to wear on the pin of the reverse camera wire harness connector
    Jul 24, 2023 Recall | Mazda is recalling 340,000 Mazda3 and Mazda CX-3 vehicles in North America due to wear on the pin of the reverse camera wire harness connector
    On July 20, 2023, more than 340,000 Mazda3 and Mazda CX-3 vehicles were recalled in the United States America and Canada due to a Mazda reverse camera problem.     The 2014-2018 recalled Mazda3 and 2016-2021 Mazda CX-3 rearview mirror images may show flickering or distorted images that do not display properly.   In May 2015, Mazda drew a complaint in the United States for a backup camera problem, and more camera image problems were reported from June 2015 to June 2017. Mazda launched an investigation into the wiring harnesses that connect car cameras after receiving eight additional complaints of faulty reverse cameras.   After an investigation, engineers determined that the rearview camera problem was caused by a worn pin of the reverse camera wire harness connector. Mazda said the rearview mirror wire harness fasteners had a design issue that could damage the wiring harness due to vibration during normal driving and when opening and closing the lift door. Naturally causes the connector pin to wear, resulting in high resistance. This in turn affects image distortion or flicker.   Mazda has issued a Technical Service Bulletin (TSB) informing dealers about the diagnosis and repair of the reverse camera problem. However, Transport Canada contacted Mazda about the handling of the backup camera issue as a technical service bulletin.   Transport Canada recommended that Mazda recall the backup cameras, and Mazda decided to fix car wiring harnesses connected to the cameras in 2014-2018 Mazda3 5-door hatchback and 2016-2021 CX-3 vehicles in Canada and the United States.   According to Mazda, the back-up camera problem has led to nine complaints and one report of property damage, but thankfully no claims of death or injury; This is the silver lining of misfortune.   The Mazda reverse camera recall letter will be mailed on September 12th, 2023, and dealers will inspect and possibly replace the rearview camera. Mazda dealers will also install wire harness fastening seals. Mazda officials say the new parts are manufactured using tight seals that protect the wiring harness from damage.
